None of the Tungusic languages has its own Wikipedia ; they are almost all extinct, except Evenki (29,000 speakers ; « Ethnologue report » reports : « Language use : Vigorous. They maintain native language and customs. It has official regional recognition in China. ») and Xibe (30,000 speakers ; « taught as a second language »).
Arguments in favour
Let the Evenks living in Russia, Mongolia and China that this request is waiting for them ! --Budelberger 15:23, 14 December 2008 (UTC) ().

- The language is certainly eligible, but are there any native speakers to work on it? --Amir E. Aharoni 18:53, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
- I support this project. There are possible active users. --Dimitris 11:27, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
- I support the new project in Evenki.--Torin 05:28, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

- You are alone, they are 29,000… They live in Russia, Mongolia and China, and none of the Wikipedias had a link to the Evenki test in their « Evenki language » article. I ask mn, sah etc. Wikipedia to create this article with this link. You don't like foreign languages, I love them. --Budelberger 16:45, 14 December 2008 (UTC) ().
- It appears you have your research wrong on GerardM... Siebrand 17:42, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
